This is a unique opportunity to experience the work of these practices first-hand. The display delves into each of their practices through models, prototypes, photographs and drawings. Learn how they are uniquely responding to local landscape, climate and culture, pushing the boundaries of architecture and experimenting with new materials and traditional craftmanship.
The selection of the winner was due to be made on the 17 March 2020, as part of the RA Architecture Awards Week celebrations, which was postponed to due to COVID-19. For updates and future plans please follow Architecture at the RA on Instagram and twitter.
